Art can be analyzed to assess a culture’s value .One enduring text in western culture is Beowulf .By looking at the different interpretations of Beowulf over the years, we can analyze the cultures that produced them .By comparing the original Anglo-Saxon epic with the modern day film adaption, we can see that the Anglo-Saxon valued fame, warfare, and role women while our modern society values good over evil, fair fight and family relationships.
There is a lot of difference between Anglo Saxon cultures and modern cultures. We differ in many ways and the way modern culture perceives the world is extremely different. The Anglo Saxon where first and modern follow .modern is probably a better way of the way Anglo Saxon value themselves and their life.
